washingtonpostJill Mikucki, a microbiology assistant professor, was part of a team that detected extensive salty groundwater networks in Antarctica using a novel airborne electromagnetic mapping sensor system called SkyTEM. The hidden interconnected lakes could sustain life and shed light on ancient climate change. They also may provide the basis for future exploration of a subsurface habitat on Mars.

The Washington Post featured Mikucki and the study in this article.
